Abstract Governments in Australia have made decisions to allocate the resources necessary to keep alive those people subject to end-stage renel disease. This is now possible as a result of improvements of various kinds in medical technology. The increased commitment of resources suggests that economic analysis of the alternative methods of treatment may produce useful results in terms of governmental decisions in the allocation of resources for the treatment of end stage renal disease. Cost-effectiveness analysis is applied to the alternative methods of treatment and a ranking of the alternatives in terms of minimum cost per life-year saved is obtained. This ranking suggests that emphasis in the allocation of resources should be placed on the transplantation alternatives.
